Noise from plasmas?


Standard Member
Do any of the latest plasma screens make any noise at all e.g. from internal fans?

I'm thinking of getting a 37" or 42" model but I really have a thing about any background noise at all. I once had a projector but had to sell it because of fan noise.

Most plasma's in that size range have dropped fans, Fujitsu being one of the few that do use them. The only concern with noise that Ive read about on these forums is "buzzing" from the Panasonics which appears to be a power supply related issue and changes in pitch depending on the image brightness. It seems to bother some more than others and I guess you just have to have a listen. Other than that you should be able to enjoy the sound of silence from the panel. Happy shopping
